Customer Question
Hi, I had a filling...
Hi, I had a filling put in to the last tooth, bottom set, on the left side of my mouth. I've been experiencing a throbbing sensation in that tooth for the past day. It feels like it's trying to suck out the filling or something. It's like a singular throbbing sensation followed by a suction like sensation like it's trying to loosing the filling. I've already had a small piece of the filling fall out months ago.

Hello, so sorry to hear of your tooth hurting!
With the foreknowledge that part of the filling has previously come out, it somewhat explains the "likely" cause & need to alleviate the pain you are having.
What I mean by the above is, once a filling has part of it chip out, it can & often further deteriorates, and pain and sensitivity usually follow... So, while not an immediate fix, I would highly suggest that you get back to the Dentist who put the filling in your tooth, or, alternatively make an appointment to another Dentist of your choice. And they can then fix the filling, which will then "likely" MAKE YOU FEEL NORMAL & WITHOUT PAIN AGAIN! I hope this helps you.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
